Magnets


#1

Almost everyone I know thinks that magnets are useless. Here, I will explain how they are not useless, and what they can be used for.

How do I get a magnet?
[/B]
A magnet can easily be crafted at any level metalwork bench for an iron ingot and two black sand. Also, if you mine black sand with a golden spade, there is a chance you can get a magnet if you mine enough of it.

Can I make anything with a magnet?
[/B]
Yes! You can make an electric motor, using 5 steel ingots, a magnet, and 10 copper wire at the level 2 metalwork bench.[B]

What does a magnet do?

If you click on an iron ore block with it, you will get 5 iron ore instead of the 3 you would normally get from mining it with a pickaxe. In addition, the iron ore block does not disappear, but becomes unmined stone. [I]Also, if you use it on black sand, the black sand will be instantly mined, without using any of the magnets durability.

[B]Can I use it on anything other than iron?
[/B]
No, you cannot. It does not work on titanium or platinum either. Here are the test results for those ores:



Platinum–Fail


Titanium–Fail

If you try to use a magnet on another ore, it will be as if you used your hand.

I need to test the magnet on platinum and titanium ore.


#3

It’s been a while, but I finally remembered to test it. And the results are: Titanium–Fail Platinum–Fail


#4

You can also remove black sand instanly with a magnet


#5

Also, if you use it on black sand, the black sand will be instantly mined, without using any of the magnets durability.

It says that in the original post, but maybe I need to make the text bigger or something.


#6

I actually only use,magnets when mining.


#7

Amazing! I never knew this about magnets and getting more iron ore out of an iron ore block than with a pickaxe! I will definitely craft one before going on my next mining trip :smiley:


#8

Ok I didn’t realise.

But you should put in its crafting recipe and the fact that if you mine black sand with a gold spade you might get a magnet


#9

Wow I didnt know that, thanks a lot!! :smiley: Obviously now I will craft some magnets for my next mining trip!

I wish I knew this before


#10

I actually did put its crafting recipe, it’s under ‘How to craft’.

I will add the info about the gold spade.

Opps sorry I missed that thanks
